We can all agree getting up each morning to go to work really sucks. Some people have a harder time getting up than others. If you are of the sort who needs a little extra help, the Sensorwake Trio might be the ticket. This is an alarm clock that wakes you not just with sound, but smells.
There are a variety of aromas to choose from like coffee, the beach, forest, or peppermint. I imagine the beach scent smells faintly of coconuts and dead fish. The wake-up process takes three minutes, and starts off emitting your smell of choice. The clock then starts to brighten to wake you with light. After the smell and light, your actual alarm goes off with a melody of some sort.
Right now you can order the Sensorwake Trio along with two scent capsules for $59 on Kickstarter. Additional capsules will sell for $15 for a six pack. The project has raised over $115,000 as of this writing, well over its $30,000 goal.
I’m going to invent the world’s best alarm clock. It will have no smells or lights. The only sound it makes will be that of a dog puking because that sound will wake anyone.
